Ah, Mickey. That adorable, big eared mouse, with whom we've laughed and cried! Just a mouse. Just a drawing. But to us, he was human! The first animated being of his kind.
But was he original after all? It appears not! 1000 years before Mickey ever appeared in Plane Crazy, a French artist fashioned a bronze brooch that looks astonishingly like Mickey Mouse. Of course, he didn't mean to invent Mickey; he was trying to sculpt a lion but failed miserably, inadvertently stumbling upon the most famous cartoon character of all time.

Okay, so now, all the Disney CEOs have to do is build a time machine, go back then and sue for copyright infringement. ;D

Good evening Sir:
I would like to know where can I buy Myst I and Riven Myst II and Exile Myst III and Revelation Myst IV and End of Ages Myst V.
I would like to have that in French. Since two months I am looking to buy the serie of Myst and I cannot find a place to buy that.
Can you help me please.
Please excuse my English
Very truly yours

In 10 years the Disney Imagineers will create a time machine. They will use the time machine to travel to ancient time periods and drop Mickey Mouse memorabilia all about ;)
